Type of Thesis
This paper examines the effect of poverty on the performance of k-12 public schools in Colorado. It employs ordinary least squares on tabulated, panel data in Colorado from 2003 through 2014. Through its use of a variety of school performance outcomes and independent variable groupings, this paper finds that (i) poverty has a significant and substantial effect on public school performance, and (ii) Black and Hispanic students in Colorado are significantly more greatly affected by poverty than White students when it comes to their performance in school.
